Cough, sputter, choke, gag

Today in Detroit, at the inaugural of Kwame Kilpatrick, the theme is love:

"The idea behind the theme came from the first lady, Carlita Kilpatrick," said Kim Hagood, head of the inaugural committee. "What it represents is love, pride and unity of Detroit and the responsibility of the community back to Detroit."

Perhaps it is just me, but Democrats are the party of words. Nice. Pretty. Words. Which have absolutely no meaning. So, here we are in a City on the verge of financial and moral collapse (four people were murdered on New Year's day, including two women in their twenties whose bodies were found on a residential street), and what does the mayor have for us? Love. A city needs answers, and Kwame is singing John Lennon.
